Reaver Apk for Android, short RfA, is a simple-to-use Reaver-GUI for Android devices with monitor-mode support.
Note:- Reaver works only on rooted devices. If your device is not rooted, please root it first with kingroot. We recommend kingroot because it doesn’t require PC to root and also kingroot support maximum number of devices.
It has some very cool features
- Detects automatically WPS-enabled routers.
- All Reaver-Settings are accessible from a simple-to-use GUI.
- Activates and deactivates Monitor-Mode automatically when needed.
- Provides a simple way to connect when Reaver finds the WPA-Key.
- External script support
How to Use Reaver Apk For Android?
- Download/install bcmon.apk from HERE and RfA.apk from the Link below.
- Run bcmon, if it crashes try a second time.
- If all runs fine, start RfA. If not, your device may be not bcmon compatible. Please see second post.
- After selecting an WPS-enabled router, click on “Test Monitor-Mode”.
- Now you can use RfA:), don’t uninstall bcmon.
Steps 1 – 4 are only for the installation, they don’t have to be repeated once done.
What is this awesome app actually usefull for?
Well, RfA is able to unveil the actual WPA(2)-Key of many routers within 2 – 10 hours.
WHAT?! I though WPA(2) is safe?
It used to be, but then many router models got WiFi Protected Setup, short WPS, implemeted, which is pretty vulnerable. (Details)
Basically it’s a Brute-Force attack with Reaver against a 8 digit pin with 10^4 + 10^3 possibilities.
What is Reaver?
Reaver-WPS is a pentesting tool developed by Tactical Network Solutions.
It attacks WPS-enabled routers and after the WPS-Pin is cracked, it retrieves the actual WPA-key.
Reaver provides only a terminal interface, which is ok for notebooks etc., however it’s a pain on Android devices.
Because of this I developed RfA.
Doesn’t Reaver requires monitor-mode and so can’t work on Android?
Yes, Reaver needs monitor-mode, but thanks to bcmon (or external wifi cards) some Android devices are now monitor-mode capable.
